DY4 0BS is the new PB5 SB2

DY4 0BS is the new PB5 SB2

Last night saw the third instalment of BMC regional races at the Tipton Track (DY4 0BS)
BRATs were out in force recording 5 Personal Bests and 2 Season’s Bests
 
Proceedings got off to a flying start in the first race (5000m) with Mark Ince leading BRATs
home in a solid season’s best, closely followed by Nathan Warren with a new PB and sub-17
performance in 16:56.67. Nathan himself was chased home by track debutant Thanos also
scoring a PB.
 
Next up was Molly Browne in her favourite event (not) the 1500m. Unperturbed Molly sliced a
massive 5 seconds off her PB and also claimed a new (to be confirmed) club record which has
stood for 14 years.
 
Abayomi dropped down to 800m and undaunted by the pace stormed around 2-laps to also 
record a new PB in 2:14.43. (those 4 x 400m relay legs are paying off).
 
Bournville’s Henry Brocklehurst finished strongly to record his second sub-2 clocking this season
– and yes you’ve guessed it – another PB.
 
In the final race of the evening (5000m) three more BRATs toed the line. Dan Robinson led home
using the race as a warm-up for the big effort the BMC Loughborough Grand Prix this weekend but 
Steve Dunsby was on full attack coming home in a seasons best of 16:14.36 just four seconds shy of a PB.
Unfortunately Martin Matthews had to cut it short due to a problematic achilles – but doubtless a wise
move from the experienced campaigner.
